A few years ago, I was very much into reading about the Virgin Mary. This has shifted recently to Eve for whatever reason. There is a painting by Masaccio titled “The Expulsion” where she is in the throes of torment, doing the “wailing and gnashing of teeth” bit. It is an amazingly powerful image. I’ve been thinking about Eve lately, and decided to do a piece about my perceptions about that woman.
